Grizzly Adams Did Have a Beard

Oh hey,
As some of you may have heard, this Tuesday began one of my favorite months of the year, No-Shave November, in large part because it means that I can’t shave and have to deal with an itchy face that nonetheless makes me irresistible to women who go for the mustache-and-splotches-elsewhere look. This is the month to wear overalls, aviators, wife beaters, and cut off sweatshirts (at least until April when we have White Trash BBQ). Trust me, ruggedness adds to your IQ and overall personal appeal.








Well, after a slight snafu with the sweatshirt folks, I went down to their store and fixed things up, and they should arrive next week. I know you’re salivating over the prospect of wearing these beautiful concoctions of fabric, zipper and string.
Warren Peace is coming up on the 10th, and it should be a very sweet event. Young Tylan Rogers has agreed to take part in a skit, so we should all go to support our fledgling thespian, and everyone else form the dorm taking part. Take notes, too, because we’re totally going to one-up them later in the year with Mac Hall in Concert. Yea! Who-ah!
Ok, that’s all I’ve got. Be ready for me to approach you sometime this week for a constituency report, which is awesome. Oh, and the dating service is still in the works...Keep up the good work on the beards. Play the banjo.
Love,
Evan

Mac Men of the Week: Cory Marshall

Cory Marshall wins this illustrious prize for this week due to his medieval-inspired foam and duct tape weapons. Way to go! Gladiators, yea! Oh, and that’s Chris LaPlante modeling them (by the way, he’s going to get married this summer). So, the lesson is, make mock killing devices and end up as MMotW!

A Quote & A Poet

Ghost Train, by Adam Duritz
I took the cannonball down to the ocean Across the desert from sea to shining sea I rode a ladder that climbs across the nation Fifty million feet of earth between the buried and me"
How do you do?"She said, "Hey, how do you do?"
She buys a ticket 'cause it's cold where she comes fromShe climbs aboard because she's scared of getting older in the snowLove is a ghost train rumbling through the darknessHold on to me darling I've got nowhere else to go
"How do you do?"She said, "How do you do?"
I took the cannonball down to the oceanWatched the diesel disappear beneath the tumbling waves Love is a ghost train howling on the radio"Remember everything." she said, "when only memory remains."
"How do you do?"She said, "Hey, how do you do?"

Speculators may do no harm as bubbles on the stream of enterprise. But the position is serious when enterprise becomes the bubble on the whirlpool of speculation. When the capital development of a country becomes the by-product of the activities of a casino, the job is likely to be ill-done. -John Maynard Keynes

The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. -Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Man is tormented by no greater anxiety than to find someone quickly to whom he can hand over that great gift of freedom with which the ill-fated creature is born. –Fyodor Dostoevky, The Brothers Karamazov

SPORTS
Thanks for coming out to Midnight Madness on Wednesday! If you have any comments/suggestions, please e-mail me at cstorm07@whitworth.edu so I may have a better idea of what to do next year. This weekend is a big one, as swimming hosts the NWC Relay's and football hosts Willamette (basically a playoff birth is on the line). Congratulations to the volleyball team and men's soccer team as they both clinched NWC Championships over Fall Break. That means we had three of the seven fall sports win conference. That's pretty sweet! Look to see more information about Whitworth hosting playoff games in the near future! Take care.

SERVE
Only three weeks until Thanksgiving. Mmm... I can already smell my mother's pumpkin pie. As we are all getting ready to go home, I would like you all to think about those who will not have a Thanksgiving dinner this year. This startling fact is cause for Whitworth's Second Annual Turkey Drive. Starts on Thursday, November 3rd through Thursday, November 24th.

Whitworth College has partnered with the Women and Children's Free Restaurant to provide 85 local families with turkeys. This fundraiser will be a competition between dorms and off-campus. Every Monday there will be a prize for the dorm that raised the most turkeys from the previous week. Jars for each dorm and off campus will be available in the HUB starting tomorrow.

Also, if you would like to serve Thanksgiving dinner to families in Spokane here are some opportunities:
Women and Children's Free Restaurant- Contact Terry Davis at 324-1995
Martin Luther King Jr. Outreach Center- Contact Charina Caruthers at 455-8722
*These dinners will take place on Tuesday, November 22nd*

Any questions?? Call Alise at 777-4553 or serve@whitworth.edu

a. President
i. General
1. Jeff Hunter: Linda wanted me to let everyone know about the new van. If at some point you need to use it – you need to take a driving test in order to be approved to drive it. NACA this weekend.
b. Executive Vice President
i. Dorm Updates
1. Arend: We have finally moved out of the voting stage and into the ordering stage for our sweatshirts. Today is November 2 meaning yesterday was November 1st which marked the start of No Shave November. It has been strongly suggested for guys.
2. B-J: We have ordered the sweatshirts and are expecting them in about a week or so.
3. Stewart: Stewart is going well – I was told that over fall break the sewage exploded again. Sweatshirts are struggling – there basically aren’t any good designs. I am going to set voting for Friday and hopefully people get motivated and turn their designs in.
4. Warren: Warren Peace is coming up soon. We are almost done with the 11X17 poster phase and from there we will move onto the next phase of the marketing plan. The least we can do is ask our friends to show up next Thursday at 9:00 and listen to the performers.
5. Ballard: In Ballard we are voting on sweatshirts.
6. Boppell: Besides our gas before fall break – all is well. I will be ordering sweatshirts in about a week or so.
7. McMillan: Sweatshirts had a little mix-up with Cuda – but it’s all cleared. I layed it down and told them what’s up. The Haunted House did not make money – but that’s ok – it was a rebuilding year.
8. Off-Campus: Tomorrow is Applebee’s at 9:00 until Close. The first 25 tables will receive free appetizers. We are also selling tee-shirts for 5 dollars – that is below cost people – so even if you don’t like off campus – buy one!
9. Beyond/Schumacher: I am not entirely sure what is going on in my dorm b/c I have been sick for the past week.
10. Village: We are going to be ordering our sweatshirts next week. But Quesadilla fest 2005 is more important. We want to bring everyone on campus to the Village and feed them Quesadillas. We want to do this and play music and take $0.25 donations for Compassion Kids. This will all be taking place the first weekend in December.
ii. Campus Vibes
1. Colette Reid: Vonda – the lady in the café – wanted me to mention that there should be a permanent calendar on the wall going into SAGA. She was referring to what we do during Jan Term – but for all of the year.
2. Jeff Brown: I was in Colorado this weekend and I saw a Jazzmans and it was pretty sweet.
iii. Media/Coordinator Report
1. Erik Fredriksen: Frisbee is officially over – LaJones won the Power and the BJ team – WildCards won the Challenge.
2. Lara Thompson: Pass.
3. Ben Leighton: Pass.
4. Aaron Boyles: Pass.
5. Amanda Smith: We are doing a huge book sale next week. I have colored the poster so that everyone will know that the book will be in ALL COLOR this year. Please post these fliers in the dorms. The book is bigger than last years and it is also ALL COLOR – for the same price as last year. We will be selling books during lunches next week. We went to Kansas City next week and learned new things and will be implementing those ideas this year. When you buy a book next week – you will be entered for a drawing for a free friend ad. You can put pictures, poems, statements, or anything really to just say what you want and thank your friends.
6. Alise Delzell: You received info on the 2nd annual thanksgiving turkey drive. We are going to try to raise money for 85 turkeys. I know we can do it b/c there are 85 families who are receiving meals from some restaurant and we want to be able to provide them turkeys. Also, there are opportunities to serve thanksgiving dinner around town. Our Place – an organization that we worked with for CBD is in need of a lot of help this month. If anyone is interested please contact them or myself.
7. Colin Storm: Midnight madness is tonight – I would appreciate it if everyone headed right over there after this. Also this weekend will be some sporting events – swimming is hosting conference.
8. Peter Smelser: Letters to the Editor are great – please write them and send them in. I was also in Kansas City last week for the media conference. I didn’t learn a whole lot – but I’m sure the rest of my staff learned something. Hopefully we can implement some of the things that we learned.
9. Amy Newton: Hockey Tickets.
10. Jackson Williams: Senior class – we have the 2nd annual thanksgiving dinner set for Nov. 16th. This will be a free event. Applications for Grad were due yesterday – Please turn them in NOW. In a few weeks we will be voting for most influential prof and for male and female speakers.
iv. General
1. Colette Reid: Linda wanted me to mention that timecards need to be on-time b/c they are making her life miserable. If they all go in at once then she will be able to be more productive. Also, when dorms go to the print shop and fill out that charge sheet – don’t put “dorms” on there b/c she has no idea where that money is supposed to come from. Please be specific when labeling your charge slips.
c. Financial Vice President
i. Clubs
1. WASTE
a. I am the president of WASTE. One of our big programs is recycling in the dorms. We had the senator’s talk about the recycling policy at the RAP meetings. We also have about 6 volunteers working with campus services to sort the recycling. We also are trying to get Free Trade Coffee and to get rid of Styrofoam from Sodexho. We also want to have a speaker from Restoring Eden come and talk about a Christian prospective about restoring the environment. We also want to have some talks about stewardship and other things this year.
ii. Capital Requisition
1. Denise Hewitt: I have a copy of the requisition and for senators; this will be a constituency report for you. We will have a quick discussion about this and then pass out these forms. Obviously we don’t have unallocated funds, so this is from Capital. There is about 12,000 dollars in the account and we are allowed to give out about 7,000 dollars this year. The request is for digital photo equipment that will last for about 5 years. The equipment is really fancy and will allow them to do things that they simply cannot do right now. This will be very beneficial for the yearbook since it is full color this year. This will allow photographers to experience high quality digital equipment. This will also cut down on photo development costs. The finance committee listened to a presentation from Peter and Amanda and recommended that ASWC give them 3,000 in funds from capital which would provide for one of the highest quality packages. That would allow them to cover accessories from their own budget. That is pretty much an overview.
a. Rebecca Bratt: Would you mind explaining the capital account?
i. Denise Hewitt: Capital is an account that is rolled over from year to year – it can only have 20,000 dollars in it – if there is more it can go into unallocated. It is basically a reserve for emergencies or for long term spending.
b. Colette Reid: If everyone were to use all of their budgets this year, and we passed this now, does that mean that technically we wouldn’t have any money in there next year?
i. Denise Hewitt: No – this is not the case as other accounts do get dumped into capital at the end of the year.
c. Alise Delzell: Is the student who uses this required to sign this out or something?
i. Amanda Smith: There will be a contract to be signed by the photography students that says if they break or damage anything, they will be required to pay for it. The contract will be a legally binding contract and required to be signed by their parents as co-signers.
2. Movement to Discuss – Seconded
a. Andrew Dolan: Do you know the photo/media expense budget?
i. Denise Hewitt: They said that they would be willing to use part of that for their purchases.
ii. Brian Baumann: They said that they would be able to drop $500 out of their account b/c they will not be required to develop anymore film.
b. Jeff Brown: This sounds like a good thing to do, but if this passes we will only have $7000 left in Capital.
i. Denise Hewitt: This is why the finance committee is only recommending $3000.
c. Daniel Walters: I don’t know much about these things, but I know that if you are spending $3000 on a camera, that we getting a good deal.
i. Denise Hewitt: The camera is the same in both of these options, the difference is the lens which allows them to take pictures at a really fast shutter speed.
ii. Brian Baumann: They are basically saying that if you can’t help purchase the cheaper lens, then we might as well not purchase any lens at all - there is no purpose in purchasing the cheaper one.
d. Jeff Brown: Assuming these cameras will last 5 to 7 years and will decrease the budget – will they pay for themselves?
i. Brian Baumann: You can essentially upgrade the camera body and re-use the lens forever pretty much. The lens is what costs the most money – the cameras aren’t the big expense.
e. Jackson Williams: Am I correct in understanding that this could also be used as the photography classes?
i. Denise Hewitt: I don’t think that we discussed this – but I think it should remain for use only by the ASWC media personnel.
f. Daniel Walters: Since this is a high quality camera and I don’t see the point in having more than one of these cameras about since it won’t be necessary to use more than one at one time. I move to go with the Finance Committees Recommendation of 3000.
i. Voting – Passes Unanimously – 18-0-0

b. Executive Vice President
i. Dorm Updates
1. Arend: We are re-voting on the sweatshirt designs and are waiting on the RAs.
2. B-J: BJ is in the middle of Assasins. It is going really well so far. I talked to some people about the pianos and we will try and get those to Beyond. Sweatshirts sales were Monday and Tuesday night. We sold 87 and are going to order them tomorrow. Go BJ!
3. Stewart: Stewart had a rough week – poop went everywhere. They need to rebuild the storage room and the laundry room currently smells like poop. They kicked us out of our rooms. All they said was find a place to live and gave no further information. A lot of people were made. I have been told that it has been cleaned but it still stinks like poop. Sweatshirts are going on and I put up a flier showing how poor the designs were. I have some people now who are interested in designing. Our RD wants to tear our building down.
4. Warren: Sweatshirts have been going on the past few days. We are also selling long-sleeve shirts for those who can’t afford sweatshirts. Tonight at 7:00 PM in Warren is a program called invisible children which talks about the children from Uganda. I have posters for you guys to put up – if every senator could take one of each kind. Warren peace will have $2 coffee drinks from Stan’s.
5. Ballard: We did get a design in so we will vote this week. Some of the girls got to help with the haunted house as tour guides and that went really well.
6. Boppell: We are doing dorm zip-ups. We had voting and it ended up in a tie. I called the company and we are going to do both designs b/c we have a high number. From what I hear the relationship discussion went well.
7. McMillan: Last night was MAC Haunted House. About 170 people went through. Thanks to all who supported us. Other than that we are ready for Fall Break.
8. Off-Campus: We are doing our Applebee’s night. The first 25 tables of people get free appetizers.

iii. Media/Coordinator Report
1. Erik Fredriksen: If you guys would ask your constituents…If they would still play ultimate if it wasn’t held in the loop. Just a simple yes or no answer would do. The head of grounds and services wants to rip out a parking lot near Hawthorne and make us our own field.
2. Lara Thompson: Pass.
3. Ben Leighton: Radio is going well. Designs are coming in for stickers and shirts.
4. Aaron Boyles: Pass.
5. Amanda Smith: Yearbook is going well. Please put the stuff from the coordinator report in your newsletters.

8. Peter Smelser: Pass.

i. Clubs
1. Whitworth Missions Fellowship
a. What we do is get together twice a month at the Cultures in Harmony theme house. We usually have a speaker. Our goal is to connect the students with the world church. Last night the speaker was from Indonesia. She spoke about God’s work outside the US. We also provide opportunities as we bring organizations that will help students get out of the US and get involved with missions. We want to get involved this year and write cards and letters to missionaries. We also pray regularly for the missions. Usually we have between 15-20 people. We can host many more. We also have free home-made dinner.

VI. Order of Business
a. President
i. Katrina Presentation
1. Jamie and Erika: We are working on a project for Gulf Coast Relief. It looks as if a third hurricane is currently on its way. We want to use volunteers from Whitworth and GU and approach Spokane Businesses and try and get them to donate a portion of their profits on a specific weekend to habitat for humanity and the united way. The reason we want to pitch it to you guys is because you’re cool. And your name carries some weight on campus – we want to say that we are doing this with ASWC. Also you have an infrastructure and we would like to use that along with some guidance from you guys. This month we are going to try to send volunteers to Spokane businesses and try and get them to commit. The reality is that after this falls out of the news people stop giving and the victims lives don’t instantly get better. We would just like to use the ASWC name when we are asking them for a commitment. Just as four students, we won’t be taken seriously. But with ASWC and Whitworth College backing we will be taken seriously. This will also create a relationship between Whitworth and other schools in the area. We want to approach the schools first and get the manpower that we need. Then we will create a timeline and try and get this going. We are also considering combining this with SpingFest. Gonzaga is on board with this and every excited about it.
ii. HUB Coffee Shop – Dayna
1. Erika: We have come up with ideas of ambience and how much control this committee actually has. Some of the ideas are like the Service Station. If you haven’t been there, please go and check it out to see what we are looking at. We are thinking of having different areas for short term eating, TV, reading, studying, etc. To make it seem more homelike is using china instead of paper plates. We are talking about Flat-Screen TVs. How interrupting can the TV’s be? We are addressing all of those ideas. We want to put more seating and additional food options in the area.
2. Dayna: This is a committee of faculty, students, and other people talking about what we would like to see occupy this space. Stan is currently a resource for this committee.
iii. Student Aid Call-In
1. Jeff Hunter: Congress wants to cut student aid by 9 billion dollars. We just want to get the message out and let students know what is going on. If you guys will put up fliers in the dorms and encourage people to call in and voice their opinion on this.
2. Jackson Williams: I think that they might have even done something like this during Prime Time last year and had papers filled out and mailed to the congressmen.
3. Daniel Walters: Are we going to become a student political lobbying organization now?
4. Jeff Hunter: No, I don’t feel this is political. I feel we are simply informing the students and that they will be affected by this.
5. Daniel Walters: Can we try and present both sides of this issue. Talk about the debt or other issues and reasons why they are considering cutting the aid.
6. Chris Caldwell: Do you know why they are cutting the aid?
7. Colette Reid: That is what Daniel is asking.
iv. General
b. Executive Vice President
i. Dorm Updates
1. Arend: Arend has had the sweatshirt design settled for a month now – but the leadership team decided that less than half of the dorm voted on the designs that we are going to have a re-vote.
2. B-J: We just came out a stressful week in the BJ. We have finalized the sweatshirt designs which definitely promote the pirate spirit. We are excited to see our parents.
3. Stewart: Sweatshirt designs were due on Monday – but I didn’t get many – we are still working on that.
4. Warren: Warren Peace is coming up. We are super excited about that. I have some posters for you guys to put up. There will be more coming very soon. I want to make sure that everyone gets one or more. We have our sweatshirt design finalized – we are rolling on that.
5. Ballard: Pass.
6. Boppell: Boppell has two sweatshirt designs that we are voting on. Tomorrow night we are having a relationship talk.
7. McMillan: My sweatshirts are ordered! Mac haunted house is on Tuesday – I have fliers. We haven’t started the dating service yet.
8. Off-Campus: We are planning the Applebees night for Nov. 3rd. It is going to be a little different b/c we don’t have a budget this year. There are also shirts for sale and the info desk.
9. Beyond/Schumacher: Beyond really wants a piano. They say that every dorm has a piano and they want to know how they should go about doing this.
a. Jackson Williams: The funding for this comes from the Women’s Auxiliary. Maybe talk to them about how you could get one.
b. Amanda Smith: Since beyond isn’t going to be with us much longer – could you maybe borrow one from them?
10. Village: With out sweatshirts – it has come down to the top two. I have enough feedback so that we can have another vote.
ii. Campus Vibes
1. Chris Caldwell: I noticed that when we went into Saga they had the sandwich bar ready and available and I was excited about that.
2. Emily Benson: Apparently the ATM you can only get $20 out – they person wanted the old machine back that gave us $5.
a. Jackson Williams: You have to select Other from the menu and chose 5$
3. Alise Delzell: I just got an email from the Army and I wanted to know how they got my email address. Jackson dialed some numbers and found out how to get rid of it and why it happened.
a. Jackson Williams: By federal mandates if any institution receives federal money they must release our information to the government. If you want to remove them from your list – just click reply and put Remove in the subject line.
4. Jackson Williams: I spoke with a few security officers and they were offended by the Whitworthian piece. They were offended by the “excessive use of force” comment. They felt that this was like the Whitworthian and ASWC discounting their work on campus.
a. Erik Fredriksen: I think they should get their act together and start protecting us from other things instead of little kids on skateboards.
b. Alise Delzell: I thought the article was tasteful and that the Whitworthian included that and another article balancing the security officers.
c. Aaron Boyles: If some kid jumps off the ramp on a skateboard and kills himself – the college is completely liable.
d. Daniel Walters: I think the article was very good – but I think the headline was editorialized and expressing an opinion.
e. Peter Smelser: If they are truly offended, tell them to write a letter to the editor and comment on it – I will publish it.
iii. Media/Coordinator Report
1. Erik Fredriksen: Ultimate Frisbee tournaments start Thursday and Sunday. I will have the brackets setup by Sunday. The soccer will be extended until Thanksgiving. You will have extra games if you play soccer.
2. Lara Thompson: Music Mondays started this week. This Monday Elizabeth Rose is playing in the HUB. Tomorrow night is Step Afrika at 9:00 PM – not 9:30.
3. Ben Leighton: A lot of things are going well in Radio. Pretty much every CD we had taken was given back which is good. We wanted to have a speaker playing in the HUB but that looks like it is a ways away b/c the current speaker is broken. Also our underwriter for concerts hooked us up with tickets for 8 different concerts.
4. Aaron Boyles: Fall break trip coming up! I don’t need to say anything other than what is in the coordinator report.
5. Amanda Smith: Pass.
6. Alise Delzell: Pass.

Football is receiving votes in the ranking. Men’s soccer is ranked number 6th in the nation. Midnight madness is coming up soon – it is going to be sweet. Wrist bands for sale at the info desk. A portion of the proceeds go to Cup of Cool Water.
8. Peter Smelser: This next Tuesday will be the last issue for two weeks. We have a trip coming up and then b/c of fall break we won’t have a paper then. If anyone wants to get their opinion in, they need to send it in by Friday at 5:00.
9. Amy Newton: My hockey tickets sold out over and above what I expected. We might have 25 people at the game on Friday. Lion King Tickets go on sale next week for $50. The art opening of the Art Gallery is going on now until 7:00 PM – go check it out.
10. Jackson Williams: Tomorrow is the senior class ice cream social 11:30 to 1 in the café. App for Grad is due by Nov 1. Try and get it done before Fall Break. It is VERY important to get it done. I am looking for options for the senior class gift.
iv. Excellence Award
1. Colette Reid: This week it goes to Peter. He has worked really hard over the past few months – if you ever have time to encourage or help him – do it. He is doing a great job. The newspapers have been wonderful.

Ring by Spring?

Dudes,
Well, this week I read a book called On Marriage and Family Life, by John Chrysostom. It was written 1600 years ago, and most of the points he makes are still valid, like when he tells wives not to nag their husbands if they don’t make enough money. That’s like the premise of every sitcom on TV! This guy is pretty awesome, though. And his view of marriage is pretty deep. Which reminds me, I have a big announcement to tell you guy: I’m…
not getting married, but Chris Laplante is! He’s still engaged! Way to go, buddy!
As for dorm stuff, thanks to everyone who got their money in to me by this Monday. The sweatshirts have been ordered, and should be here in about two weeks. Mac Haunted House is coming up, and we’re going to start getting preliminary decoration done this weekend. So if you can pull away from the folks for a few hours, or if you’re a Parent’s Weekend Orphan, it would be great if you could help out with this.
Also, we’re co-sponsoring a dance with our friends in BJ next Wednesday, which should be sweet. Come prepared to get down. I’ll teach you all my baby dance. It’s a good way to get girls to like you, I promise.
Have fun this weekend with your parents, if yours are coming. If they’re not, have fun with other people’s parents—the leech approach is very classy. Keep on trucking, we’re almost to Fall Break. Peace, brothers, and remember: Lie La Lie/Lie La Lie Lie Lie La Lie/Lie La Lie/Lie La Lie La Lie La Lie La La La Lie/Lie La Lie/Lie la Lie Lie Lie La Lie/Lie La Lie/Lie La Lie La Lie La Lie La La La Lie.

Mac Woman of the Month: Kelli Helsel

Some of you might have met this amazing woman, but for those of you who haven’t, it’s about time we showcased her. Kelli is indeed our favorite woman in Mac, and her birthday was this Wednesday (guys, be sure to wish her a happy birthday). Kelli, our love for you overflows like the second floor urinal. But seriously, we appreciate all the hard work you put in to make this the best dorm on campus. We love you deeply.

A Quote & A Poet

The Boxer by Paul Simon
I am just a poor boy,Though my story’s seldom told,I have squandered my resistanceFor a pocketful of mumbles,Such are promisesAll lies and jest Still, a man hears what he wants to hear And disregards the rest.
When I left my home And my family,I was no more than a boy in the company of strangersin the quiet of a railway station,Running scared.Laying low, Seeking out the poorer quarters Where the ragged people go,Looking for the places Only they would know.Lie-la-lie . . .
Asking only workman’s wages I come looking for a job,But I get no offers.Just a come-on from the whores On Seventh AvenueI do declare,There were times when I was so lonesome I took some comfort there.Lie-la-lie . . .
Then I’m laying out my winter clothes And wishing I was gone,Going homeWhere the New York City winters Aren’t bleeding me,Leading me, Going home.
In the clearing stands a boxer,And a fighter by his tradeAnd he carries the remainders Of ev’ry glove that laid him downAnd cut him till he cried out In his anger and his shame,“I am leaving, I am leaving”But the fighter still remainsLie-la-lie . . .

To love in this way is to become like God. As a drop of water seems to disappear completely in a quantity of wine, taking the wine's flavor and color; as red-hot iron becomes indistinguishable from the glow of fire and its own original form disappears; as air suffused with the light of the sun seems transformed into the brightness of the light, as if it were itself light rather than merely lit up; so, in those who are holy, it is necessary for human affection to dissolve in some ineffable way, and be poured into the will of God. How will God be all in all if anything of man remain in man? The substance remains, but in another form, with another glory, another power.-Bernard of Clairvaux

News From ASWC:

KWRS
The station is running smoothly. We had a CD sale last week and we sold 100 cd's. It was not as successful as we had anticipated but we will soon be putting more newer CD's in the stack for another CD sale before next semester.

We have numerous tickets that we will be giving away next week. We have tickets to 7 concerts including: Staind, 311, Gwar, Roses are Red, The Upright Dub Orchestra, and Jason Mraz. The times and dates that these tickets will be given away will be annonced tomorrow.
We also still have free pizzas to be given away in the near future so keep listening. Also keep in mind that we are going to have t-shirts and stickers soon so if you would like to have one please let me know.

Amazing Fall Break Climbing Trip!!

Nothing to do over Fall Break yet? Then why not join Outdoor Rec on a climbing trip of epic proportions. We will be going 2 ½ hours west to Frenchman’s Coulee (near Vantage) to climb some amazing basalt cliffs. There are more than 600 climbing routes of all difficulty levels in this area and the scenery is uniquely beautiful. The trip will leave Friday morning @ 10 am and return Sunday night. That means we will have half the day Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday to climb, hike and just kick back and forget about school. This will be an amazing 3-day/2-night tent camping trip with transportation, equipment and 6 meals provided for ONLY $35. No climbing experience is necessary at all, but advanced climbers are welcome as well. This is a great way to get off campus and see a different part of Washington. A sign-up will be available starting Friday at the Info Desk. In order to guarantee yourself a spot you will need to pay when you sign up. Trips like this always seem to fill very quickly so sign up as soon as you can. If you have questions email them to Aaron, the Outdoor Rec Coordinator, at aboyles02@whitworth.edu, or call him @ x4561.

III. Welcoming of Guests
IV. Order of Business
a. President
i. Mission Statement/Quote – Read by Rose Spero
ii. Approval of Minutes
iii. General
1. Jeff Hunter: Does anyone remember how we did the book drive last year? The lady who ran that said that we raised $597 dollars. Do we want to do that again? Is that worth running again?
b. Executive Vice President
i. Welcoming of New Member
1. Colette Reid: On Monday we finished fall elections. I want everyone to welcome Katie who is our new BJ Rep. Now that we are a completed team – I want everyone to mark your calendar for a week from tomorrow – we are going to have a pizza dinner up here. We will do our mini-fall-type retreat thing. We will be playing some corny games and stuff. It is mandatory fun. This also means that two nights in a row you will get free dinner.
ii. Dorm Updates
1. Arend: I think some people got a good laugh this afternoon as Whitworth security tore through the loop in a truck chasing some kids on skateboards.
2. B-J: We have about 15 designs.
3. Stewart: We are turning in sweatshirt designs right now.
4. Warren: We just finished our sweatshirt designs. We voted on them last night – there were about 20 designs. The design that actually won – won by only one vote. Warren Peace is coming up on November 10th.
5. Ballard: I only have one design right now.
6. Boppell: Our healthy relationship program is next Thursday the 20th @ 9:00. The main speaker is a visiting prof. I also have a group of student leaders who will be leading discussion.
7. McMillan: We have designed a sweatshirt. I have collected some money. We are about to send in the order. The dorm is really excited about the haunted house on the 25th. Tonight is a planning meeting for that. I think that’s about it. We are starting a SchMacBe&Be dating service. We are sending out a questionnaire to the entire dorm community. We have compiled a whole paper of $5 date ideas. We basically send people on $5 dates.
8. Off-Campus: Pass.
9. Beyond/Schumacher: I haven’t received many ideas for shirts yet.
10. Village: We also started up the whole sweatshirt design competition. So far we only have one design.
iii. Campus Vibes
1. Erik Fredriksen: I think that we should file a formal complaint against Whitworth Security because the way that they were driving was very reckless.
a. Rachel Makowski: I had to jump out of the way of the security vehicle. I think that they were driving very dangerously.
b. Emily Benson: I think that only people who saw the event should file the petition/complaint. My point is that we shouldn’t be out to get security; we should just express our concern about the issue.
2. Jeff Brown: I’m sure this has been brought up before. A lot of people want the sandwich bar for dinner for Sodexho.
a. Evan Cate: I went to the Sodexho focus group on Monday. That issue was brought up as a self serve deal.
b. Daniel Walters: I think if you personally talk to Jim O’Brien you will get a good response.
iv. Media/Coordinator Report
1. Erik Fredriksen: First of all – huge tennis tournament is Sunday. The prize is dinner for two at Qdoba Mexican Grill. If any of you boys want to ask some hot young lady to play with you – go for it. I want to ask you guys about the IM Champ shirts.
2. Lara Thompson: Half Past Nine this week will be a coffee house in the café. There will be a whole range of bands. $1 espressos will also be available at Stan’s.
3. Ben Leighton: I had the engineer come and fix a lot of things on Monday. We have working record player, iPod connector, and headphones. I am still missing CDs – but we did get some back. CD sale tomorrow in the HUB. Also – listen to Adam’s show Sunday Night. Colin and Sean think that they can get John Stockton to come on the show. Go to KWRS.fm and listen to web-casting.
4. Aaron Boyles: This weekend the weather looks good. I am doing ½ priced rentals so that people can get outside and do fun things. That is all I have for now.
5. Amanda Smith: Pass.
6. Alise Delzell: Pass.
7. Colin Storm: Friday volleyball at 7. Saturday women’s soccer at noon. Midnight madness on Nov 2nd.
8. Peter Smelser: What was said in the Ugly Stick was serious, it wasn’t a joke.
9. Amy Newton: NickleCreek Tickets went on sale today – when I checked at 3:00 there were only two left. Lion King goes on sale next week – they will be $25 off. We have two separate nights available. Hockey tickets go on sale on Monday for on the ice seats. Party-Pod will be on Nov. 4th. I am getting good feedback on the entertainment guide. I am throwing a few new things in there this week. Last but not least I am working on scare fest which will have dinner, games, and a monster mash dance.
10. Jackson Williams: Senior Graduation stuff will be coming up really soon.
v. Excellence Award
1. Colette Reid: This week the award goes to Therese. This is because she brought tons of people to a meeting once and also, she has been doing an awesome job connecting with people in her dorm. She is always helping out the RD and showing up on Prime Time – great job!
vi. General
c. Financial Vice President
i. Clubs
1. Pre-Med
a. The pre-med club is following the historical focus of the club. We try to get info about the MCATS to the members as well as volunteering information. We already had one informational meeting last night. We also planned some meetings for the year including a doctor who was in Kenya for a few years who wants to come and speak to us. We also have some MA’s who want to talk about alternatives for going into the Med field. We also want to team up with the Science club and go paintball or something fun like that.
2. Water Polo
a. We have a great time this year. We are having a lot of fun. We practice a bunch of times a week – Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. We will teach you everything if you want to participate. You don’t need to know anything at all. We are trying to arrange some scrimmages with GU and UI. We would love for you to come and watch. We also want to have a fundraiser soon so that we can buy shot clocks so that we can have games here. There are currently 10-15 people who attend regularly. There are also some who pretend to want to be on the team.
3. WISE
a. Women In Society Everywhere. We deal with feminism and gender awareness. We have been around for a few years now and have a lot of good ideas for what to do this semester. We want to sponsor the health week that is coming up possible. We also want to sponsor the festival of shalom also. We have about 15 people who come to the meetings. Our email lists are 150 people strong. I think that people decide weather to come or not depending on the subject matter of the meetings.
4. Latin America Club
a. Hannah Dufford: Our main mission is to raise awareness for the people of Latin America both abroad and here in Spokane. Last Friday we had a benefit dinner for local Latino families here in Spokane. Soon we will be putting on a food drive here on campus and give food to needy families for thanksgiving. We are also helping with Festival of Shalom. This Friday there is a dance for Hispanic heritage month at Fairchild AFB. It is open to GU and Eastern students as well as Whitworth students. We have over 80 people signed up so far. We have about 50-60 members in the club who are all fairly active.
ii. General
1. Reminders to coordinators – please turn in your inventories soon. Also, if you are going to sell things from the info desk – please let me know what account you want that to go under.
d. General Announcements
i. Adam Jones: I hate that chain-mail that is going around campus. It makes me so mad!
ii. Colette Reid: Make sure that your journals are in by noon – NOT later. Also – don’t miss your 1-on-1’s because that is NOT an option.
V. Meeting Adjourned: The Meeting was adjourned at 5:51 PM

Sex, Drugs, and my Grandmas

Hey guys,
Well, it’s been a long week, and everyone seems to be getting busy. Parent’s Weekend is coming up, which means both my folks and both my grandmas are coming up. My grandmas are pretty sweet: one of them, who’s 89, told me a Viagra joke this summer, and the other, 84, decided she wanted to start a meth lab. So that’s awesome. And they play bridge together.
Anyway, time for dorm business. I’m still collecting money for Sweatshirts. The deadline to pay me is Monday the 17th. Please get your money to me soon so that we can all look super sweet in our zip-ups.
We had the Mac Haunted House meeting on Wednesday night, and it went well. Thanks for all who showed up. We basically decided that each floor will deal with decorating their floor, and third floor can help where they’re needed. For more info, see Andrew if you live in the basement, Dresback, Jake, and Ozzie on first, Joe, Stefan and Matt P on second, and Bryan Clarke. Thanks guys for stepping up—this is going to be awesome!
Also, this weekend you should get a flyer about the dating service. So keep your eyes open for that.
Finally, Mac Haunted House is the 25th, so be sure to get the word out to your friends. Seriously, this is the best way to advertise, so get your friends pumped!
I hope things are going well for you all. Dig in; Fall Break is almost here. Thanks for all those who have paid for sweatshirts already. Enjoy your weekends. Animal rights is a joke. Evan

Mac Men of the Week: Matt Monahan, Jeff Forsyth, Chris LaPlante, Bryan Clarke

Ahhh so many amazing Mac Men this week. Matt and Jeff caught a squirrel through sheer grit and determination. They succeeded despite the animal rights protestations of a Ballard woman. Way to stay strong, boys. Chris proposed to his girlfriend this past weekend. What a man! And Bryan Clarke PR’d in his swim meet, which says something because he’s already like the best swimmer at Whitworth! Nice job, men!

A Quote & A Poet

Only Quotes this week. Send me your personal poems and I’ll post them!

"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar."
-Julius Caesar

“If you would know your history/Then you would know where you're coming from.” -Bob Marley

"Death is the best thing that can ever happen to a rapper. Almost dying isn't bad, either." -Kanye West

“Smokey, this isn't Nam, this is bowling. There are rules!”

"True love is the greatest thing in the world. Except for a nice MLT...mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich where the mutton is nice and lean, and the tomato is ripe...they're so perky. I love that."-Miracle Max

I Want Your Money NOW

Yo,
There’s a lot going on and a ton coming up, so I’m not going to do any personal anecdotes this week. And I’m out of creativity.
Anyway, SWEATHIRTS have been designed and I can begin collecting money. They will cost $30. They are zip-up hoodies and they look super sweet (I’ll try and send out a picture when they get back to me with one). I’m going to collect money before they get here, so I need you to pay ASAP. I’ll take cash and checks (checks made out to ASWC). The faster you pay me, the faster we get the sweatshirts!
Another big event you might have heard about is Mac Haunted House on the 25th. We will be having a full dorm meeting on the 12th to discuss ideas and get people started on preparation for the event. This is something that Mac is known for, and it’s really important that we make it the scariest ever.
We will also be having our first Mac Out on the 10th at 5:30 on the Smiley. For those who don’t know about Mac Out, it’s where we dress up really nice (suit and tie) for the whole day, then go to dinner together as a dorm. We will be escorting beautiful women from our dorm community, so be sure to look stunning.
The dorm service project will be on the 15th. We will be working on a Habitat for Humanity house, probably from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on that Saturday. Keep your eyes open for further details.
Finally, we will be starting a SchMac B&B dating service, so await further details about this awesome way to meet the girl of your dreams. I’ll be sending out a questionnaire, and you can fill it out and send it back to me, and we’ll pair you with someone compatible and gorgeous.
Finally finally, if you’re flying somewhere for Fall Break and need a shuttle to the airport, make your reservations at the HUB Info Desk by Saturday the 16th at 7pm.
Thanks, guys. I know these are a lot of details, but I think you can handle it because you’re sweet. Keynes is obsolete. Evan

Stay tuned for Assassins!!! in the winter with snowballs!

A Quote & A Poet

All Along the Watchtower, by Bob Dylan
"There must be some way out of here," said the joker to the thief,"There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief.Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth,None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.""No reason to get excited," the thief, he kindly spoke,"There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke.But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate,So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late."All along the watchtower, princes kept the viewWhile all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

"...the ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else. Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back." -John Maynard Keynes

News From ASWC

iii. Meeting Discussion
1. Jeff Hunter: I think we have lost focus of the ground rules that we have set when we got together for orientation. I have an issue when someone is speaking and I cannot here them. Sometimes the side chatter is very loud and distracts from the meeting. The guests who are here will perceive that as disrespectful. You need to be conscious of your environment. There has been note passing, text messaging, and other activities. I don’t want to see any of that. I am not a big overbearing disciplinarian. Just please remember the ground rules – if it gets to the point where I have to bang the gavel, then I will. There is a purpose to these meetings and there are guests here. If there is something that needs to be discussed, please let me know. If the discussion is going south, then I will shut it down and not tolerate it. I think everyone understands that.
iv. HUB Gallery Policy – Denise Burningham
1. Denise Burningham: Here is the new policy – I believe it was emailed to all of the senators and representatives. There are a few changes – please take a few moments to review the handout. Are there any questions?

i. Dorm Updates
1. Arend: “We’ve got lice.”
2. B-J: There are signs up for elections and there is a lot of activity regarding that.
3. Stewart:
4. Warren: All of our equipment in the lounge has been fixed. We have new pool equipment for the pool table. Warren peace is in the process of collecting T-shirt deisgns.
5. Ballard: In the parking lot there have been parking violations handed out even though there are no signs or anything telling us what not to do. They should at least put up some kind of sign there.
6. Boppell: There is a relationship program being put on the three of our RAs. They are having some guest speakers – it is supposed to be on Oct 19th. They want to talk about relationships and what is healthy and what is not healthy. It is for everyone who wants to come.
7. McMillan: The Mac leadership team appreciated the apologies on Tuesday. Also, there was some talk about an article in the paper about the Mac and BJ rivalry. It seemed like it was written to start something. I am unsure of why that was in there.
a. Peter Smelser: We are addressing the issues and there will be a follow up next week by a current Mac man who lived in BJ last year. We are working on something addressing the problem. If you are really upset – write letters to the editor.
8. Off-Campus: This Sunday was the Walk for Diabetes. It was a lot of fun. There were about 11 of us who walked. It was fun b/c we were able to raise $815 dollars. It was hard to get people excited about service.
9. Beyond/Schumacher: Some girls in the dorm are concerned about the janitors taking breaks in the dorm. He comes in around 8:30 and sits on the couch when the girls are taking a shower.
10. Village: I found out from the RD that all of the financing was approved for the dorm logo thing on the sidewalk. So we will go through with that. Also – thanks for getting back to me on the bike racks.
ii. Campus Vibes
1. Andrew Dolan: I have had some people talk to me about relocating the bookstore. I asked Tom about the relocation of the bookstore and he said it was something that was a vision for the distant future. I don’t think there is any need to discuss something that is so far in the future and not even finalized yet.
2. Jackson Williams: I have had some students talk to me about the placement of the coolers in the Stan’s are. They feel it isn’t convenient and they don’t know where to pay for the items at.
3. Rebecca Bratt: Why are the Weyerhaeuser comp. labs closing at 5 now? It is really inconvenient for night classes.
4. Chris Caldwell: There are a lot of people who want to get the sweaters and stuff for the village – how do we go about organizing all of this?
5. Chris Caldwell: Does anyone know how many buildings will be on the slate for the end of the year?
6. Chris Caldwell: Is everyone familiar with a young man who is named Obe Quarless? He is interested in giving lessons and needs some funding to get some money to teach the students.
iii. Media/Coordinator Report
1. Chad Boyer:
2. Lara Thompson: Batman Begins tomorrow night with Free Qdoba Nachos. Next week will be a coffee house with local bands playing – about 8 bands total. Definitely come to that. I am still looking for people to sign up for SOFA.
3. Ben Leighton: I finally went through and renewed the license this week. We might be taken off the air because our frequency is so low power that people want to take our frequency and kick us off the air. Hopefully they renew it for me. Also, we are getting our record player fixed and we are selling CDs next week Thursday in the Hub from 11 to 1.
4. Aaron Boyles:
5. Amanda Smith: Everything is finally getting started – it is all going well.
6. Alise Delzell: I just want to encourage you guys to put your opinion on the Voice in regards to CBD. We are having a meeting in a while with me and service learning and Dr. Mandeville. I want to get your feedback so that we can make a good decision regarding that. You can also leave anonymous messages on the Voice. I got a lot of thank-you cards from a lot of people who we served.
7. Collin Storm: I want to thank Peter for that little plug. For those of you who don’t know, we went to Tacoma for a lot of sporting events this past weekend. On Friday the soccer teams play Whitman. You can skip your classes – just tell your Professors that I said you can. On Saturday we are having a tale gate party. I will be handing out fliers soon. Just come and hang out before the game which is at 12:30. We gave them their closest game last year and are looking for beat them this year. Also, the wrist bands are available in the hub.
8. Peter Smelser: I have received the unofficial count – we have been mentioned three times in this meeting – good or bad – thanks for reading the newspaper. Whitworthian is going well. Continue to encourage people to write letters to the editor. Please be sure to check out the online version for exclusive articles that didn’t make the cut.
9. Amy Newton:
10. Jackson Williams: Ice Cream Social from 11:30 to 1 Thursday. Don’t forget to turn in apps for graduation which are due a month from now.
iv. Elections
1. Colette Reid: Elections are going on right now so we will be having a new member next week.
v. Excellence Award
1. Colette Reid: This week Eric went down to facilities services and got the signs telling others to stay off the loop after the rain – he didn’t have to do this and went above and beyond the call of duty.
vi. General
c. Financial Vice President
i. Unallocated
1. Denise Hewitt: Actually – there will be no unallocated this fall. When we made the estimates we were a few students over what the estimate was. Everyone has the amounts that they were given – but there is no amount in unallocated this fall. Students can still get money from Capital for something that will last for more than 5 years.
a. Dayna Coleman: For history’s sake, don’t let this scare you. In the past this was a regular occurrence. We did a good job about giving money to the programmers who needed it most and to the clubs. We would much rather have organizations and elected officials to have the money – don’t freak out – we budgeted really well. You still have the option to fundraise and use the money that you have been budgeted. We have been really spoiled in the past few years with the high enrolment and have had unallocated funds. A lot of people in this room will tell you that we don’t use the unallocated funds wisely anyway.
ii. Clubs
1. Four Directions Native Club
a. Jamie McDonald: This summer I learned my native language and I would like to introduce myself in this language. I would also like to talk about ways we could raise money and awareness for our club. It is hard for us to get notices as we are 1% of the population and there are only 7 native students at our school. We were thinking about different things we could do to raise money. We were thinking of making special foods and stuff – but everyone has a different opinion of what College students will pay. We were thinking of ways to promote it also, but are not having much success. Nov. is Native American month. We want to have a speaker to come and talk about the natives. I am an Alaska native which is different from the lower 48 states natives. We also want to have movie nights and talking about stereotypes in the movies and discuss what is fact and fiction. We also were thinking about starting an IM team for Lacrosse. Are there any questions?
2. Circle K
a. Representatives from Gonzaga University: We are basically here to get your program started again. We have been here working with your school for the past three years. We are trying to generate interest. In my opinion there is no hurry with leadership positions, I just want to generate interest and service. I believe the last time the club was really up and going was in 98’ or 99’. I want to talk to you guys about projects. What you have done with YMCA and City Gate – that is what we try to do. We do things from Habitat for Humanity, Union Gospel Mission, Food Banks, and other activities. There are scholarships available for participants in Circle K. We are in the Pacific Northwest District which includes WA, OR, ID, N-CA, AK, and BC. Circle K is the largest collegiate service organization in the world. We have some fliers for you guys to put up around the dorms. We want to have a meeting next Tuesday night at maybe around 9:00 in the Senate Chambers. If you guys are willing to come or put up posters, we would really appreciate that. There is contact info on the posters, if you want to contact us with more questions, we are mite than willing to answer any questions that you guys have.
